CARL AZUZ, HOST OF CNN10: Hi, I'm Carl Azuz and this is CNN10 where we are starting with a look at some of the results from yesterday's U.S. midterm elections.

Americans were deciding on a slew of proposed state laws, thousands of positions in local and state governments, who'd serve as the governors of 36 states. And when it came to Washington, D.C., which political party would be in control of the House of Representatives and the Senate.

Those races get a lot of attention nationally because they could impact how effective the president is in getting his legislative agenda through Congress.

Just looking at the House, here are some of the priorities that Republicans said they had if they maintained control — immigration reform, funding for a wall along the U.S. border with Mexico, tax cuts for the middle class and repealing Obamacare.

Here are some of the priorities that Democrats said they had if they won control — ethics reform, voter protection laws, the investigation concerning President Donald Trump and Russia and a bill to strengthen the nation's infrastructure. Again, this is just in the House, but it gives you a sense of the very different priorities of the different political Parties.

But where did it finish? Well, according to the projections of CNN and other major networks, Democrats appeared to have taken control of the House from Republicans and Republicans appeared to have maintained their control of the Senate.

The exact numbers hadn't been confirmed by the time we produced this show, we will have those for you in the days ahead. But going forward, the U.S. has, once again, what's called a divided or split Congress, with one chamber controlled by one Party and the other controlled by the other. So, if any major legislation is going to be passed, compromise will be key.

CNN10分钟新闻主持人卡尔·阿祖兹:大家好,我是卡尔·阿祖兹,这里是CNN10分钟新闻,今天首先来关注昨天举行的美国中期选举的结果。

美国选民在多个州法律提案、数千个地方和州政府职位以及36个州的州长人选上做出了决定。就华盛顿特区来说,选民就众议院和参议院的控制权做出了决定。

这些竞争在全美引发了大量关注,因为这可能会影响总统推动国会批准其立法议程的有效性。

以众议院为例,以下是共和党在维持控制权后将优先考虑的一些事务:移民改革、为美墨边境墙拨款、为中产阶级减税以及废除“奥巴马医改”。

下面来看民主党在赢得控制权后将优先考虑的事务:道德改革、选民保护法、调查唐纳德·特朗普总统和俄罗斯之间的关系、出台加强国家基础设施的法案。这只是众议院的情况,但是这使大家得以了解不同政党关注的重点任务极为不同。

那结果如何?据CNN和其他主要电视网的预测,民主党似乎从共和党手中夺回了众议院的控制权,而共和党似乎维持了其对参议院的控制权。

在我们制作本期节目时,具体的投票结果还没有确认,我们将在未来几天报道具体信息。但是展望未来,美国将再度迎来“分裂国会”,即一个议院由一个政党控制,而另一个议院由另一个政党控制。这样一来,如果要通过重要议案,能否达成妥协将成为关键。
